This was a freebie (source forgotten in the mists of time) stitched on 28 count white cashel with DMC threads.
Last night in a bleary eyed race to the finish I completed the stitching on the Scottie Mitten.
Now I think I'd like to finish this in a mitten shape so the flowing crosses forming the ribbon the right will come out and I will make cord to tie a ribbon there when this is constructed. I am super pleased with this one so it will be going nowhere but on to my tree.
With that done I will get on with my Naxos Necessaire while the instructors helpful hints are still fresh in my brain. There are many metres of stitching before the construction can begin and as I took this class to learn the construction I will need to persist.
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
